Weird occurances on my computer, need some advice

First off I'm running WINme, the newest Internet Explorer. I have no antivirus software, and am running the free version of Zonealarm.

So odd things happen from time to time, for instance I had to log in to dvdtalk for some reason, typically I am already logged in. In addition the font size while viewing the net changes from time to time.

Any ideas? If I think of other things I'll let you know.

actually quite normal. I have to log into Dvdtalk from time to time. not sure if it is a server issue or not.

not sure about the font size. I assume you mean the same page changes from one day to the next. It might be nothing more than coding changes at that site.

Does anyone else use the computer besides you? User settings are all independant so if you have a cookie stored for DVD talk but your wife booted up the computer your cookie wont be there.

If you regularly surf porn and go into IE setup and delete all history and web content that will kill the cookies too.

Do you have a mouse wheel? If so, you're most likely accidentally changing the font size by scrolling while holding down ctrl.
